But he's really anything but a moderate.
Jim Gilmore failed to use this to his advantage against Warner in 2008, but it bears repeating about Warner's liberal leanings, as well as what he thinks about those who believe in the Second Amendment and Christianity.
"you’re going to see a coalition that has just about completely taken over the Republican Party in this state and if they have their way, it’s going to take over state government. It’s made up of the Christian Coalition, it’s made up of the right to lifers, it’s made up of the NRA, it’s made up of the homeschoolers, it’s made up of a whole coalition of people that have all sorts of different views that I think most of us in this room would find threatening to what it means to be an American."So, if you believe in Jesus Christ, or the right to keep and bear arms, and the sanctity of life, Mark Warner thinks you are a threat to the country.
If you ask me, I think someone like Mark Warner, who votes for a job-killing, freedom-stealing bill known as Obamacare, doesn't have a clue what it means to be an American.
If Ed Gillespie has some fight in him, he will use this, and the allegations made over the weekend about the Senator.
